(Conservative Tribune) We all know that Chick-fil-A is a different kind of fast food establishment. With its embrace of Christian values and patriotism, it’s become a darling of conservatives and a bête noire of the left.
However, I don’t think anyone saw this coming:
A Chick-fil-A worker sang Lee Greenwood’s classic patriotic anthem, “God Bless the U.S.A.” After the powerful rendition, the entire restaurant gave the employee a huge round of applause.
This video was taken by Facebook user Frances West at a Chick-fil-A at the Oak Park Plaza in Overland, Kansas. Almost as soon as it went up, it went viral in a huge way.
In less than 24 hours, the amazing clip was viewed over 4.5 million times on Facebook. Another 29,000 people liked it and over 108,000 shared it.
“What passion & talent! He should be on the ‘Voice’ … !” user Linda Yosten said.
“Beautiful!! God Bless the servicemen and women past and present #USA,” Jus Maegon wrote.
“I already love Chick Fil A but would love to thank him for singing this,” Michael Latimore Jr. added.
This table is reserved to honor our missing comrades in arms,” a sign explaining the table read.
“The tablecloth is white — symbolizing the purity of their motives when answering the call of duty. The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing and their loved ones and friends of these Americans who keep the faith, awaiting answers.
“The vase is tied with a red ribbon, symbol of our continued determination to account for our missing. A pinch of salt symbolizes the tears endured by those missing and their families who seek answers.
“The Bible represents the strength gained through faith to sustain those lost from our country, founded as one nation under God. The glass is inverted — to symbolize their inability to share this evening’s toast. The chair is empty — they are missing.”
On Veterans Day as always, Chick-fil-A reminds us just why we love them.
